Once again, tensions ran high at another Donald Trump rally. At the Kansas City stop of Trump‘s campaign trail, protestors were pepper sprayed by the police.

Now, Donald Trump threatens to export violence from his own rallies to the rallies of his rival Bernie Sanders.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Trump threatens to break up Sanders‘ meetings

Today, 15:44

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has threatened to send off his supporters at the election rallies of his Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.

In a tweet Trump writes that Sanders is lying when he denies that he ordered his supporters to disrupt Trump rallies. “Be careful, Bernie, or my supporters will go to yours!” …

People who are furious about Trump’s statements about Muslims and immigrants come to the election speeches of the multimillionaire in order to voice oppositional views. Trump has said before that his opponents are supposedly tools of “our communist friend Sanders.”

Sanders issued a statement Saturday denying his campaign organized the protests and blamed Trump’s harsh rhetoric. “What causes the violence at Trump’s rally is a candidate that has promoted hatred and division against Latinos, Muslims, women and people with disabilities“: here.

  1. Finding myself on CNN one fine morning this past week, I tried to explain what it was that Democratic voters were finding attractive about a Sanders Presidency.

    Was it the hair? No. Was it the glasses? No. Was it the Brooklyn accent? No. It was the Sanders platform:

    ● a $15 minimum wage.
    ● free public college.
    ● expanding Social Security and Medicare benefits.
    ● eliminating tax breaks for the rich.
    ● renegotiating trade deals that have given our workers the shaft.
    ● extracting ourselves from foreign military adventures.
    ● Medicare for all.
    ● refinancing of student loans.
    ● paid sick leave.
    ● taking dirty money out of politics.

    To which anyone from Brooklyn would say, “what’s not to like?”

    These are the changes that America needs today – what America demands today. Chip in $10 now, to show your support for our campaign for justice, equality and peace >>

    These progressive proposals are, in fact, wildly popular with the American electorate. Here are actual polling numbers from last year:

    ● Refinancing student loans: 78% for, 10% against.
    ● Renegotiating trade deals: 75% for, 11% against.
    ● Medicare for all: 71% for, 13% against.
    ● Free public college: 71% for, 19% against.
    ● Expand Social Security benefits: 70% for, 15% against.

    So that’s the Sanders “secret”: He stands for what America wants, and what America needs.

    In response to these points by yours truly, the gentleman to my right, a Clinton supporter, emitted an inky word cloud of bafflegab, featuring repeated incantation of the horror-word “socialism.” As in Sanders = socialism. Also Sanders = Fidel-Castro-Cuba-Nicaragua-Venezuela-revolution-yadda-yadda-yadda.

    I will quote Sen. Sanders on this: “Let me define for you, simply and straightforwardly, what democratic socialism means to me. It builds on what Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, when he fought for guaranteed economic rights for all Americans.” (Like a decent minimum wage, for instance.)

    What I’m about to say may sound hopelessly simpleminded, but I think that an election should be about choosing leaders who will GIVE US WHAT WE WANT. As I sometimes say on the campaign trail, don’t think of it as voting for me; think of it as voting for you.

    Why do I deserve your support? Because if I’m elected, then I will do everything I can to make these good things happen. So now it’s your turn: contribute $10 to our campaign, and MAKE GOOD THINGS HAPPEN >>

    Courage,

  2. There are two Democratic Presidential Primaries. One is almost over. The other is about to begin.

    The first Democratic Presidential Primary runs from Feb. 1 to March 15. All 11 “Old South” states vote in that primary. We have two states left to go, but Hillary Clinton has won every one of the other nine, by an average of 43 points.

    Outside those “Old South” states, 12 other states also have voted. Bernie Sanders has won nine of those races, Hillary Clinton has won only two, and there has been one tie (Iowa). The average result in those 12 states has been a Sanders win by just under 20 points.

    The net effect of this (Hillary winning the “Old South” by 43 points, Bernie winning everywhere else by 20 points) is a Clinton lead among pledged delegates of 223 (specifically, 775 to 552).

    Which brings us to the second Democratic Presidential Primary: Democratic Presidential Primary 2.0. It runs from March 16 through June 7. It includes none of the “Old South” states, because they all will have already voted. It includes all of the Pacific states, and all of the “Mountain” states except Colorado and Nevada (which already voted). The biggest prizes are California (545 delegates), New York (291) and Pennsylvania (210).

    Democratic Presidential Primary 2.0 elects a total of 2033 pledged delegates. If Bernie Sanders wins those races (and delegates) by the same 60-40 margin that he has amassed in primaries and caucuses outside the “Old South” to date, then that will give him an advantage of 407 pledged delegates. That is more — far more — than the current Clinton margin of 223.

    Almost 700 pledged delegates are chosen on June 7 alone. It seems unlikely that either candidate will accumulate a margin of 700 pledged delegates before then. So this one may come down to the wire.

    Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a wild ride.

    Remember – if our next President is a Democrat, then that President will need a strong progressive ally like me in the Senate. And if not, then our country will desperately need that. Support our Senate campaign today >>

    Courage,

    Rep. Alan Grayson
